conservative. the distinction is all-important. as witnessed buckley's description of george w. bush. "he is conservative, buckley told an interviewer, but he is not a conservative." in other words, he didn't get it. in recent years, there have emerged or re-emerged folks that we call paleoconservatives, national defense conservatives, social and religious conservatives, constitutional conservatives, big government conservatives, and neoconservatives. all trying and fighting for the right to redefine and lead the movement buckley called into being. reminding one of the time that al gore campaigning in milwaukee mistranslated e pluribus unum as out of one many. a few years ago, at the conservative political action conference that mallory mentioned earlier, we honored bill's brother jim and former minnesota senator eugene mccarthy for their 1947 challenge to that era's campaign finance reform. in responding to the toasts, the liberal gene mccarthy stood up and said, you conservatives have had a good run but you are in trouble. because i keep hearing talk of hyphenated conservatives. that's
with a story that i had told him about shortly after george h. w. bush was elected president, his brother called me and said that he was going to run against lowell weicker in the primary in connecticut. that actually the families had lived next door to each other and the kids didn't get along which was the real reason. but he said i need your help because we conservatives have to stick together. and i said prescott, you are not a conservative. you have never been a conservative and you will never be one. if you want my help because i don't like lowell weicker, that's one thing but don't try that one. he said no, you don't understand. now that reagan's been elected we're all conservatives. and that's what i'm talking about because it was more a little thing than a philosophical thing. and a movement of ideas, i mean, this doesn't just take place among conservatives. think of the communist world. by the time the soviet union collapsed, the communist party was like the rotary club, more dangerous than the rotary club, but to find -- you would have been hard pressed to find a communiist in t
of television and america and his life. a rare interview where george w. bush talks about keeping america great and the cause closest to
was up here in the primary with the candidates including george w. bush have been in fall in six presidential campaigns. now seven. hopefully i will continue in new hampshire. it is such a critical state. it is great to see steve's results as an entrepreneur. i knew he was a great friend said john mccain. he was doing a little bit of everything on the campaign trail. we used to talk about what he was up to back home. he is engaging in a presidential campaign. if you are an entrepreneur and a risk taker, you need a business environment. part of that will be dictated by washington. right now all the unpredictability in our economy, it is not difficult to get people to take a risk and to do what steve has done and what my family has done an ohio. my father was a small business guy who took a risk. he left his job in sales and started his own business. i asked him whether he would do it again. he said, i do not know. there's so much uncertainty out there. you have a government that does not seem to get it. they're making it more difficult and not easier to get jobs. steve has taken r
in the first six months, they are comparable to president george w. bush. of course he won in 2004, but that was the first presidential election after 9/11. the big issue was national security and the big issue now is the economy and, to have these disappointing numbers is a trouble spot and it means president obama has to attack mitt romney, out of touch and doesn't care about the middle class and it will be a negative campaign and close race. >> jamie: thanks to the brain room for keeping us on top of accurate numbers, john cleary today. we were discussing, he and i, of the last four months, three of them we have been at 8.2% and here's the numbers of job created in the first six months during an election year. re-election for these candidates. 8.2%. what are the expectations of the american people come november? >> i don't think much will change between now and then, the president has to make the case the economy is getting better, a little better and there is more work to be done but the -- earlier this year the economy was looking a little stronger and if you go back to the ye
do you want president, cool or confident. >> george w. bush, he was cooler whoever that dummy was that ran against him. gore. >> and then kerry. >> it was like eight years ago or something. >> i want to bring up social consciousness. it was being part of social groupings that are considered thoughtful. >> i don't think it necessarily means that. you see a cool dude and little girl and you buy her an ice cream. >> that is hunger. >> and it was basically saying -- >> if this is transmitted to companies as well because they are doing this corporate consciousness responsibility. >> gregg: this is an important story. from cool to pool, florida lifeguard, was fired for leaving his assigned area but he could get his whistle back. on monday, tomas lopez ran 1500 feet south of his zone after he was told a man was swim at your own risk. dolphin like dude helped rescue the guy but he was met with a pink slip. he has a policy toted to rescue someone outside their jurisdiction. in response to public outcry they offered his job back. they said to take the job and shove it. >> actually he hu
the evening. but there -- that had never been the republican position. remember, george w. bush ran for president as opposed to what they call nation building which is part of what that's all about. and it was after 9/11 that he was sold on the idea that -- i remember the -- if you remember the line that you often hear, we have to do that because democracies don't make war on each other. and my response was, what about pennsylvania and virginia in 1861? you know what i mean? that has little to do with it in reality. so those are important fights that are taking place, but as buckley would say, if he looked at that, those are fights on the margin because the core of the republican party would fit in with this fusionist kind of view. i mean, if you asked rick santorum, he'd agree with ron paul on more things than he disagrees with him on. >> you talked about how ideas require repudiation of false conservatism. and buckley's ideas led to them throwing out john burch. you mentioned that. john burch society and the ian rands objectivists. but today, a lot of the burcheresque movement in
, but george w. bush presented bill buckley the medal of freedom at a white house ceremony honoring his life, his work, and acknowledging the debt that the country and all of us owed him. by then, though, buckley sensed that the movement he built was fraying around the edges. he was convinced that the balance it had existed among the various constituencies that made up the movement was somehow off kilter. it seemed to him that some like the young president who placed the medal around his neck, just didn't get it. that other who's had come to washington to do good had stayed to do well. and that the sectarianism and hubris that they demonstrated was leading the movement down the road to potential disaster. buckley had never been orthodox in his conservatism. he didn't believe that conservatism was ideological so much as a way of looking at life. he opposed any dissent into a doctrinaire ideological way of thinking. that was one of the reasons he had so much trouble with ayn rand and the objectivists. over the years he differed with fellow conservatives on all manner of important issues. he fa

drug benefit created by george w. bush. and a lot of it comes from cleaning up the mess the republicans created and wall street created. but beyond that, mitt romney is in absolutely no position to talk about whittling the debt down when he's advocating a gigantic tax cut for the wealthy that is not going to even pay for. he has not shown how he is going to close whatever loopholes he said he's going to close. so it's a both dishonest and hypocritical message. i think democrats ought to be standing up to it and saying it is dishonest and hypocritical and blaming romney for not having a single new idea for bringing jobs back. not a single idea. >> mr. bernstein what i see feeding that narrative, whether it's fact or fiction we can discuss, but even if it is fiction is the supreme court deskigs having been up yesterday constitutionally as a taxing authority of the congress i can tell you, i answered phone, i host a radio program where i hear from people who say, see that, i knew i was going to get whacked with a tax to pay for obama care. largely the people calling asserting that have hea
work quite well for george h. w. bush, attacking michael dukakis' jobs record in massachusetts saying he claimed there was a massachusetts miracle, it wasn't living up to -- to -- to the numbers. same things with bain capital here. if he is running as somebody who create jobs, we found real humans who lost their jobs because of decisions he made. make it so people don't trust him to build the economy and then they are given a choice for president they are toll rating and somebody who can't be trusted to reverse the trend. >> so okay, i want to pick up with something it is kind of an x factor that few people are talking about. you, dave, have in a recent post how the third party can have a major impact even with just a few votes. you cite the elections with both al gore and john mccain. talk about that and how third party candidates can swing the electoral college. >> well, if we are looking at an election where the incumbent is trying to disqualify the challenger, part of that -- people are just going to be dissatisfied with both candidates. in 2008 they liked those candidates n 2004,
's barack obama or george w. bush, but it's not that simple, not that satisfying. one cause however does stand out amongst many. cheap and ample credit. for years the ability of almost every working american to access more credit than they should have been able to, masked the underlying fact that lower and middle class incomes were not rising. people felt and in many cases actually were wealthier than their salaries or socioeconomic status would suggest. getting a loan and buying a house, often more house than you needed or would have expected to buy, made you feel wealthier. as more people bought those houses, your net worth increased. you borrowed against that house, maybe. maybe you put your kids through college with the money. maybe you bought another house or financed a small business. maybe there wasn't even a house involved. maybe you did all of those things on low interest credit cards or other kinds of loans, but it doesn't really matter because generally economies were strong and you had a job, even if the job wasn't getting much better and your wage wasn't growing you were for
assistant to president george w. bush and a member of the democratic national committee and former chair of vice president al gore's campaign in michigan in 2000. debbie, welcome. brad, welcome to you both. brad, let me start with you. this sounds like it came from the romney campaign but it did not. steve told us that robert gibbs, the obama campaign spokesman says we're not adding jobs fast enough, not growing the economy. what do they do? >> what they do, i'm not going to give advice to the democrats. i'll leave that to debbie but what the republicans need to do is it's not enough to tell the american people how bad obama is. they know that. they need an alternative and they have to believe that a change is going to better their situation so it's up to romney to lay out a clear and definitive plan in the next few months that the american people can say, ok, we've had enough of obama, we're willing to make the change in romney and the change that romney is willing to make is better than what we got. 70% of the american people, eric, whether you're republican or democrat feel the ameri
returns. george w. bush released 17 years of tax returns during the course of his career. partly because of the complexity of the modern code and tax avoidance at the top, which i think is a big problem. one of the ironies here is that you're advocating a 19% rate, which would, of course, be a tax hike for mitt romney. we should be clear in 2010 he paid 13.9% effective rate and 2011 estimate. so, on that, i can get, i can, you and i can find a little sliver in the diagram of common ground, which is that mitt romney should pay more in taxes, right? >> you know, the problem with those statistics you put up, chris, you know this, that how does mitt romney make his money? he makes it through investing, through bain capital. he owns stock. you're not including the money and if you include the corporate taxes. >> in the cayman islands so they don't pay any money in taxes. that's the whole point? why do you think they put them in the cayman islands? because they want the money to go to the beach. >> look, i don't know what he's doing with this cayman island money, what i'm talking about the inv
